A 911 dispatcher is getting praised for taking the time out of her day to help a caller who needed help with his homework.
Antonia Bundy, who works for the Lafayette Police Department in Indiana, stayed on the phone with a boy who dialed the emergency number to say he “had a really bad day” and had “tons” of homework. The boy, whose identity is not known, told Bundy that he had math homework he was struggling with. In the audio recording posted on Twitter Friday, Bundy is heard working with the boy as he adds his fractions. When they finish the problem, the boy lets her know that it was the only problem he was stuck on. “I’m sorry for calling you, but I really needed help,” he said.
Our dispatchers never know what the next call might be.They train for many emergency situations, homework help is not one they plan for. We don’t recommend 911 for homework help but this dispatcher helped a young boy out and brightened his day.@PoliceOne @apbweb @wlfi @WTHRcom pic.twitter.com/w3qCYfJP7O
